this is why you should care only. join the fight for the lives of those wounded in two terrible awesome volgograd report on the most vulnerable victims of the violence. you carry bryce's so for a new wave of immigration is the work permit requirements for barry ins and rumania called for david cameron to safeguard the borders go one he did. and the residents of new york have a new form of brutality to contend with and it's spreading like wildfire both online and on the streets. thanks for being with us you're watching international. doctors in moscow are
trying to save the lives of a baby and a young child critically injured in the volgograd terrorist attacks they've been brought to the russian capital for specialist treatment after the blast. has the details. of russian children's clinic a hospital it's one of the best such hospitals in the country and the girls are both being treated here now the nine year old received her injuries during the first blast that took place in the volgograd on the twenty ninth of december both the girl and her mother have sustained injuries and that's terror attack this second terror attack which hits volgograd less than twenty four hours later on december thirtieth that took place on the child the bus where both the mother and the grandmother of the three month old baby were killed the girl was said and that is the report according to some of the doctors the girl was saved by a blanket in which she was wrapped which prevented her from receiving life threatening injuries from the debris. that went flying now regarding the state of
health of both girls the doctors are remaining cautiously optimistic because their injuries are serious and so is their condition overall eighteen people have been brought into law school for treatment these are some of the more serious cases out of the more than forty people who have sustained injuries thirty four people have been killed in the two terror attacks in volgograd traditionally new year's is one of the biggest holidays in the country but obviously this is due with us have been seriously dampened by the horrific attacks of volgograd in fact of the first three days of the year are declared days of mourning in the volgograd region there is also an alert of fifteen day long alerts for heightened terror. danger in the region as well and the mood is also exacerbated by the fact that there are thousands of police who have been brought in from other regions as well as internal troops who are literally calming the city of volgograd and the region looking for
possible clues and also of course to prevent any other terror attacks from happening again so obviously a very desperate kind of trying time for the volgograd region at the moment. on our website we do have more on the terror blast that rocked russia to had come from the pictures analysis and reaction to the tragedy. that is just over twenty four hours since the u.k. lifted its seventy migration restrictions on romania bulgaria following an e.u. wide ruling poll say most britons are ready to welcome migrants but only if they integrate and work hard however a quarter say they want immigration cutback no matter what the north say. boyko reports on how the u.k. is bracing itself for the influx. leading up to the new year the british government hadn't released any estimates about the number of remain ians ambled carians that they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been
lifted for them and that uncertainty hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely anywhere within the european union year of skepticism and public concerns over mass immigration a written all time high if you're coming to claim benefits you shouldn't that shouldn't be allowed and also if you flag the work you shouldn't be able to go on claiming benefits you should be asked to return to your country but the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying the person can cope with very many and ample garion migration according to the paper instead of a law making the public the government merely needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing
around panicking about it now it's completely absurd it's the duty of not just government but all over the to be response but it's going to explain the facts which are that on the whole i'm arguing for considerably less like the defined benefit rather. than the persons remaining in diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by that portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hard working and will contribute to british society something that economists here a happy to back up it's quite important for politicians to step back and explain that this is not the end of the world but on the whole immigration and indeed free movement within europe and been quite beneficial to the u.k. economy despite the politicians tough talk in the tabloid headlines fears of a flood of migrants have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in
officials most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway. judging by the weather here you can blame them playboy i see london and writer and journalist john white also believes migration actually benefits the u.k. he. told the a real the evidence is that the migration to britain has been i mean it's positive both in terms of cultural enrichment and phenomena in virtue and if you just take the health service for one example we are a national health service we would be nonexistent with migrant labor all levels of skill. doctors consultants and clinicians we have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working for the youth and they enjoy the benefits of that so. we're going to draw benefits from migrants we can expect a quid pro quo. meanwhile in europe dances to tough economic challenges are
becoming more and more extreme still to come on our t.v. right wing groups again in grants from the u.k. to greece and their voice is set to get louder with european parliamentary elections looming in the spring. come the olympic city has new tracks and not just for the athletes this time stay with us for a look at the new is to dish and to sell cheese infrastructure whisk sports fans to the venue in simple quick time. now a new form of violence has hit the streets of new york and police seem unable or unwilling to do anything to stop it portnoy has more now on the new gang craze that's spreading fear across the city. you're walking down the street minding your own business and without warning police say they are investigating yet another knockout attack attackers mainly in their teens targeting victims at random it's
called the knockout game the goal of this violent and twisted so called game is to knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been randomly assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest a seventy six year old woman was walking along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work surrounded me one of them as i tried to get away one of them stepped out towards me and. with the close this in the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have been viewed by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place
in broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue struggling to curb the string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe. former n.y.p.d. officer rabbi gary moskowitz is offering his seventh degree black belt skills for free to knock out victims and others seeking protection we're going up to someone who works worker you must learn how to be aware you must learn how to fight if some girls are time to do the knockout attacks or throw him into him ready to moskowitz believes are likely motivated by gang initiation was something the n.y.p.d. hasn't officially acknowledged if they acknowledge that there's a guy who had a problem is they have to really try to curb all the guns and they can't do that so for fear so a lot of times they don't want to put a name on something right away because if they put on any one of them they have to
go away or through archie reached out to the n.y.p.d. to find out what america's most powerful police department is doing to combat the knockout epidemic our questions and interview requests were ignored it is not fair to any pleas for parm to be able to be assigned to everybody in the shrewd they can protect. us from new york city streets the big apple's mass surveillance system does actually allow officials to know where and when many of the crimes are occurring but so far filming the knockouts hasn't helped to prevent them marina. new york. a mysterious arising from the fukushima meltdown site but the company responsible for cleaning up the worst nuclear disaster since two noble has failed to explain. they saying it's a radioactive two upright you can read more about this story. that this is one explosive entry into the record the world's tallest building helping to.

again nothing seems to be able to stop europe's to the political right at the moment with only tentative signs of economic growth and precious little good news for deeply indebted countries like greece and france it's a movement that seems difficult to reverse artie's p. to all of it takes a closer look at a continent in search of nuances to hard problems. from the d.l. in britain in the north to golden dawn in greece and the south far right groups are
making their voices heard in europe finance this financial crisis affected everyone and it has allowed the right wing organizations to give people someone to blame for their problems it's those people's fault that is how they recruit greece has seen a marked increase in support of the far right in neo nazi groups golden dawn and organization the right did by their critics as hooligans and third heralded by their supporters as the savior for greece for the greeks and they systematically not only preach and cultivate. but they attack systematical immigrants present golden dawn have made it further than most they have elected officials on their books including current greek m.p.
elias custody at us it's not only in politics that extreme right to abuse a permeating this goal celebration by. athens your just kept the itis so the midfielder banned for life from the national team despite his claims that he didn't know what the salute meant but the clearest indicator of the popularity of the far right will be when europeans go to the polls in may to vote in the e.u. parliamentary elections one of those parties on the rise in france is muddying the lipans national front that this. european people are realizing that the years in empire the soviet union that in fact is destroying their freedom despite insistences that they want to take part in the political discourse we've seen repeated violent clashes involving these groups even in some of the most stable nations like austria where around a third of people voted for parties that are considered right wing in
a recent election. so we need to slow down immigration i have nothing against foreigners but enough is enough. e.u. is saying where no money should go to allow again poor countries on its own country and did he used to wouldn't be like. dictate everything. to us it used to be that party's interest spruced and the e.u. second now it's only. it seems as long as europe's finances continue to languish in the red more and more people are seeking says the right peter all of a faulty germany. well he's an expert in social trends and he says the poor state of the economy explains europe's lean to the far right eve financial crisis is really the key least in my these parties have gained support in recent years the
crises and distrust of politicians is it has led to distrust of immigration or immigrants and i think what they're offering is not a very concrete alternative in terms of policy in terms of economic policy support for these parties is really based on you know and dislike of the established political regime whatever that is and so people are looking for some alternative and these parties come in and provide that but i don't think it's clear to people what they actually represent or what the consequences of their policies would be. and later today max kaiser puts his finger on one of the reasons europe's east is struggling to merge from its economic doldrums politicians who simply don't know what they're dealing. now know that people who are in charge of economics know absolutely nothing about money for example none of their economic models include money they just are modeling based on certain assumptions that don't
include debt so in the u.k. economy as close to a thousand percent debt to g.d.p. inclusive a bank their national debt household debt corporate debt that's a thousand percent what you iceland before blew up but i was born tells us this is a good this is a recovery this is good news and this to paper the times of london carries a story saying he's the britain of the year he's the clown of the year he should be getting the clown of the year meanwhile at the close association over there at the festival of red nose day one of the core comic relief they say they're out there actually investing in cigarette companies gambling companies energy companies they're the ones investing in the worst the worst of the worst in terms of companies so the real clowns are investing in death and destruction and this guy is not supposed to be a clown is out there doing a clown or team getting people more into debt.

a journey to antarctica. originally the federal reserve system celebrated its one hundredth birthday the other big card game that just a few years ago no one seemed to know about has been in place for one hundred years so let's celebrate the federal reserve by remembering all their accomplishments since nine hundred thirteen. firstly they've managed to take the printing of money out of the hands of the us government and thus out of the hands of us voters i what it comes to money who needs to mock received representation anyways they also managed to whittle away the dollars tagging the gold until nixon finally said forget gold let's print our way out of vietnam because there's no link between the dollar and gold the purchasing power of the dollar has reduced by at least twenty three times since the fed came into being lovely but what about the next hundred
years well if the recent rounds of quantitative easing are any sign of things to come then we're going to be seeing a lot more inflation and big private bankers getting richer while we all get poorer bad people generally don't survive one hundred years but bad systems sadly can go on and on and on forever but that's just my opinion. the beginning of the. most in the face of life. enough temptation. to douglas last for six months. as the people. and it is easy to hide the rifle at school. because the other do so in a space of their new indigenous people but there are those who do choose this
